Her work:

Nature is a major source of inspiration to Sue. She combine the gentleness of undulating landscapes, the turmoil of the sea and the soft sensuality of the human form into her work.

She uses a variety of traditional hand building techniques to create contemporary sculptural forms. Using coiling, pinching and slabbing she constructs the individual pieces, brushing, scratching and in-laying textures throughout the drying process to enhance the entrenched surfaces. This can involve many repeated applications of oxides and slips.

“The moon, the sea & everything in-between”; is a series of hand-built ceramic sculptures inspired by a moment in time. With the sun setting over the tranquil sea and the moon climbing the steel blue sky, there was she, captivated by the space in-between.
